You must attain at least 50%* overall attendance for classes. Medical leave and Leave of Absence (LOA) will not be considered part of the 50% attendance. For example, if you have 16 lessons for a subject, you will need to be present for at least 8 lessons. Should you be absent for an #assessment, you will need to have a medical certificate or approved LOA in order to be eligible for a re-assessment.
The affected module(s) which the required minimum attendance is not met will be awarded with only a maximum grade of “P” (non-graded pass), with an associated grade point of 1.0.
* If you are a WTS recipient applying for Training Allowance or you are under company sponsorship which is applying for Absentee Payroll, you will need to meet the minimum attendance requirement of 75% for each subject as part of the terms and conditions for Workfare’s scheme. Medical leave and LOA will not be considered part of the 75% attendance. The Training Allowance and Absentee Payroll do not apply to students taking the Skills-Based Modular Courses.
